The missing San Diego teen with familial connections to Guam has been found.
According to a report from ABC10news, Cirena Artero was found safe late Monday afternoon walking on a street in Salton City.
A good Samaritan who saw the news reports approached the 16-year-old and asked if she wanted to go to the police station.
By Tuesday, Artero was back home in San Diego.
According to the report, circumstances behind Artero’s disappearance remain unclear.
Artero disappeared on Nov. 8, Friday, leaving behind a trail of disturbing clues.
Artero’s mother, Tina Camacho, said in an earlier news report that her daughter had met a 19-year-old online weeks before her disappearance. Camacho said her daughter and the 19-year-old had planned to meet up that night.
According to the report, Camacho found photos from the 19-year-old’s Instagram page — including one with a handgun and bloody fingers.
Another showed the 19-year-old with a gun-like hand gesture..with fingers placed to the side of his head.
Former Department of Chamorro Affairs president Joseph Cameron, who is related to the teen, told K57’s Patti Arroyo what he knew about the ongoing investigation.
“What I could gather was the daughter was in communications weeks prior via Instagram with an individual. She’s 16 and the guy’s 19 … at least they found out later,” Cameron said in the K57 interview.
